Description

The adorably named Parsley Cottage can be found in the ever popular Peak District village of Tideswell. This stone-built, traditional end-terrace cottage is complete with a wood burner, making it warm, cosy and a perfect base from which to discover all that the Peak District National Park has to offer.
Nestled between the rugged Dark Peaks of the north, and gentle rolling dales of the south, Tideswell itself benefits from plenty of local amenities including shops, pubs serving food, cafés and annual events including a food festival, wakes week, arts festival and even its very own Last Night of the Proms. Probably best known for the large and impressive St John the Baptist Church, or the ‘Cathedral of the Peak’, Tideswell is surrounded by stunning scenery and glorious countryside and there are a number of other Peak District towns and villages within easy reach. These include Litton, 5 minutes’ drive, Eyam, 10 minutes’ drive, and Castleton, Bakewell and Buxton, all 20 minutes’ drive. The magnificent historic houses of Chatsworth Estate and Haddon Hall can also be reached in around 20 minutes, Matlock and Ashbourne in about 40 minutes, and for those thrillseekers, Alton Towers in under an hour. Shop 350 yards, pub and restaurant 70 yards.
Parsley Cottage can be booked together with Nutmeg Cottage (ref UK4080), located 100 yards away, to accommodate up to 8 guests.

About the local area

The River Wye follows the Wye Valley, rising above Buxton flowing eastward through Bakewell before finally joining the Derwent at Rowsley. This is perhaps Derbyshire's prettiest rivers with its limestone uplands and superb dales.

At Monsal Dale the valley widens, the steep sided Monsal Head provides spectacular views over the valley before the river reaches Ashford-in-the-Water, passing beneath what was a medieval packhorse bridge and then again at Bakewell where there is a 13th century bridge with five gothic arches before reaching Haddon Hall.

The old market town of Buxton nestles in the Derbyshire hills and at a height of 1,000 feet above sea level it is one of England's highest towns. Its fame as a health spa dates back to Roman times.

Bakewell has an equally ancient past being mentioned in the Doomsday Book and probably also occupied by the Romans. This beautiful, small market town is situated on the River Wye and has many pleasant walks from the bridge to the town centre where there are many shops, pubs and restaurants and one of the oldest markets in the area, dating back to 1300. The renowned Bakewell Show takes place on the first Wednesday and Thursday of August, attracting both the farming community and visitors from all over the region and beyond.

Apart from the many charming Peak District villages that can be found throughout the Wye Valley other nearby places of interest includes Chatsworth House, home of the Dukes of Devonshire and the grandest stately house in the region and Haddon Hall, a medieval manor house and home to the Dukes of Rutland situated on the River Wye.
